Wow, I had not seen From Dusk Till Dawn in…forever.
To me personally, the movie isn’t scary. It never has been. It was always fun for me — fun to see Salma Hayek turn into some hideous vampire, fun to see Cheech Marin running around as 80 million different characters (alright, so more like…three), fun to see Quentin Tarantino being a psycho sick pervert. I don’t know what’s freakier; Tarantino as a rapist or somehow having come across the knowledge that Tarantino has some sort of thing with feet, combined with long, long shots of Juliette Lewis’ bare toes.
It’s a fun movie. Personally, you just have to put Robert Rodriguez’s name somewhere on the box and I’ll watch it. I’m easy to please — I love guns and gore and the fact that you can almost certainly spot Danny Trejo in any one of his movies. (Trejo = badass.)
It is most definitely a fun ride. I lost my copy of the Dimension Collector’s Series a while ago in a move, probably a couple of moves ago, so I picked up a copy the other night for $7.50 and it was most definitely worth it to keep it.
